-ain family

Our class does a word family every week. I love this time with the class. We get to learn new meanings, input words into our lexical system, and just have fun!

Today was no exception. It was the -ain family. After the kids exhausted their brains with their ideas, I add in a few of my own. I helped them with strain and sprain and then gave them a clue for the next word I was thinking of.

Me: It is a country that speaks Spanish...

And without missing a beat, one of my students said, "Mexico."

I just smiled and then said, "Spain."
